*LIVE* Online STEM Workshops with the Long Island Explorium
*LIVE* Online STEM Workshops with the Long Island Explorium!
Keep up the learning from home while you are away from school. Our highly trained educators will be reinforcing the NYSSLS cross cutting concepts during these innovative workshops.
Join us each day for interactive online workshops where we challenge you to discover, design and explore innovative STEM projects. We will use simple, everyday materials found in your own home. And, if you can’t find the materials, step up to the challenge and problem solve! There’s always a solution to the problem if we think outside the box!
These workshops are designed to develop an understanding in the Engineering Design Learning Standards. Students will plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.
All these workshops are aligned with the NYS Science Learning Standards, ELA and Math Standards. We will be reinforcing the cross-cutting concepts in all workshops.

Monday, April 13th – Launch it! *NEW*
Join us for an interactive workshop where we challenge you to create a catapult! We will explore simple machines to try and get our projectiles to fly through the air. Increase the challenge by using fewer materials - a catapult can be made out of anything! How does the size of your catapult affect the distance the projectile travels? How does the angle you’re launching it affect it? Do heavier or lighter projectiles travel further? How accurately can you aim at a target?
Wednesday, April 15th – Making Music with Jars!
An interactive physics workshop where we explore how sound is made! We will investigate how to change the pitch and volume of different sounds and challenge you to spot the patterns that will enable you to play a tune. How does the amount of water in the jar affect the pitch of the note? How does the size of the container affect its resonant frequency? What fraction of the jar do you need to fill the jar with water to make the note an octave higher?
Friday, April 17th - Music Outside the Box! *NEW*
Join us for an interactive workshop where we explore music! Participants will investigate the components of string instruments and the purpose of each part, and use that knowledge to construct their own box guitar. They will investigate how to change the pitch of the notes they play and attempt to tune their guitars, while we explore the science of waves and how sound travels through the air? How does the thickness of the elastic band change the pitch of the sound? Can you make the same elastic band make a different sound? How about two different elastic bands make the same sound?
